Garrett Burgess Griffin Royse, City Founder
- Mr. Royse, better known as “Byrd Royse,” was born in Adair County, Kentucky on January 31, 1838, to William and Mary Stone Royse
- He was the seventh of 14 children
- We are quite sure Mr. Royse loved Bulldogs but if pressed we have no documented evidence of this
- However, there is no documented evidence that he didn't love Bulldogs, thus, he loved Bulldogs
- Mr. Royse served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War
- Around 1850, Mr. Royse’s future grandmother-in-law and her sons bought several tracts of land that were later known as Royse City
- The MK&T Railroad line from Greenville to Dallas ran through Rockwall County. Mr. Royse donated land for the railway and cut a deal to build a train station if they named the city after him
- His new train station was painted gold and black but back in the day nobody knew why
- Prices for land in Royse City rose and the Royse family sold their stake and participated in the Oklahoma Land Rush. There, Mr. Royse and his wife resided until their deaths
